If you would like to add some sort of meat to this dish, we've tried:
-Grilled Chicken
-Boiled and Shredded Chicken
-Ground Beef
-Ground Turkey
-Shredded Turkey
-Turkey Sausage
This recipe is extremely versatile. You could also use a different sausage, but I prefer the turkey sausage because it it a little lighter on my stomach.
